Giftedness and nurturing blooms


‘The Gifted like Orchids Bloom… ‘

(by Leslie Graves)

The Gifted are like the Orchid Blooms

the many shapes, and coloured hues

delight the eye, some with  perfume

each dancinng to their unique tune


It may seem easy, a pot with  rim

with earth, food, water, and hanging tins

from the outside, when  looking in

meeting their needs, growing these things


However each is unusual, special, and  rare

they take quite a bit of individual care

without wisdom and gentleness, one must beware

blooms remain buds, growing vines remain bare


Although, each individual, within this group

share some similarities, yes they do

the differences there, between any two

mean each may play a separete tune


And for each beautiful blossom to play

open, unfurling, a dramatic display

so to, like an orchid, gifted children I say,

must be grown, in a particular kind of clay!.

    I love it! I’ve been wanting to try my hand at growing an orchid… after growing a couple gifted kids, how hard can it be? I just have to find a low-perfume variety…
